I notice that the graphic display of poll results is rigged to visually exaggerate Obama’s lead something like 210 to 182 when I FReeped the poll, but the bars are truncated at about 180 so Obama’s lead looks huge.

It will be interesting to see whether it switches to showing the whole poll result to scale once Romney takes the lead after a vigorous FReep of the poll, or whether that, too will be exaggerated in appearance.

Freeped.

Poll shows just over 182 for Romney, just under 210 for O. Chart is very miss-leading, makes it appear that only a few votes are for R and most are for O.

Freeped. Gotta say, though, these pinheads have the heads up their bung-hole. This was their lead-up paragraph to their Kenyan endorsement:
"People support a candidate for many reasons — some of them quite personal. We want our country to be safe, we want it to be successful; we want our country to provide even better opportunities for our children and grandchildren."

And then they claim that nObama is the better candidate to do this? Geez, I thought I was reading the New York Crimes or the San Francisco Comical!

His selection of Paul Ryan as his running mate was a bold and refreshing choice. But his economic plan relies too much on the policies that contributed to our deficit problem today.

Really? I failed to see anything in his plan that attempts to make home ownership an entitlement and ignoring the problems this creates until the housing bubble bursts?

Well, that about says it all for WS. Now that we’ve seen these poll results, we should hope Romney stops wasting money in WS for it most surely is a lost cause now. I mean if the La Crosse paper says it the whole state is done. NOT! Some of the posts to the article are delusional to say the least. Suppose it really doesn’t matter what anybody says, if you don’t vote for uncle obie, you’re a racist. Has nothing do with his lack of character or integrity. None what so ever. Wonder how folks would feel if it were someone like Clarence Thomas or Walter Williams or even Herman Cain? Of course they are just porch, uh, help. Yeah, that’s it. ABM and ABW gotta go.

About 640 R and 220 O at this time - looks like readership doesn’t agree with them.

The editorial board clearly has its head rectally self contained, but not all is bad from La Crosse.

I absolutely love the Gibson Les Paul Custom I bought from Dave's Guitar Shop in La Crosse, Wisconsin during my consumer's protest of the Fed's illegal acts against Gibson Guitar!

Dave's Guitar Shop took good care of me and, for what it's worth, the ebony fretboard is very nice.

Go look now. As of about 8:45 AM Romney almost 900, Obama about 250. They no longer are giving exact scores. Just bar graphs. I don't think the change is due to only to freeping. I rather doubt this thread has been viewed hundreds of times, or hundreds of us here have hit it (no offense to you-know-who for infringing on his copywrited proclivity).

Good catch. I used to complain about that manipulation when our local schools/govt were doing their annual budget. They’d put the bar low to show dramatic need/increase when the picture taken in its totality was quite different.

Weird result (I hate graphs) but the results work for me!

Mitt- just under 1200 votes
0- just under 300 votes

I'd like to think much of it "organic" rather than someone doing the early & OFTEN hammer.

We have only 40 or so posts this thread...and returning to the site, I could not see the poll. Had to refresh the first time around to see it...that didn't work a second time.

Wisconsin would be nice. I like cheese. Does anybody else like cheese?

And, they reset the baseline to 0 so that the Romney lead is visually minimized! When Obama was ahead 210 to 182, they had the bars start at 180 so Romney’s was 2 units long and Obama’s was 30.
